The hotel is super convenient to the Metro line 2 connecting to the airports and train stations easily. Even the ground routes to the rest of Shanghai are convenient and quick as well, so taxis and rideshares are fast.The area has a ton of restaurants and delivery service is easy. If you like walking or jogging, walk up Century Ave to the park at the Science Museum, or a little further to Century Park. Or just take one subway stop. Lujiazui and the riverfront is close too, in the other direction The hotel itself was clean and the bed and room comfortable. Great staff and the buffet breakfast was good. I lived in Shanghai for over ten years, so I know the city well, and chose this for my needs on my return visit. If you like nightlife, you might chose another part of the city in Puxi (though there are bars nearby here), but really with Didi rideshare, it's no big deal getting back. If you want a solid and easy stay in Shanghai with great Metro access, the Courtyard can't be beat.
